Item details

This listing is for 1 tumbled Cassiterite stone

The size of these stones are approx. 1 - 1 1/8 "

Cassiterite is a tin oxide and it is the primary ore of tin. Since early times and still to this day, Cassiterite has been the most popular source for tin. The mineral name, 'cassiterite', originated from a Greek word meaning 'tin', 'kassiteros'. As a result, it is commonly referred to as the 'tin stone'. Though Cassiterite is quite abundant in rough mineral form, transparent gemstone quality material is exceptionally rare.

Owing to its rarity, Cassiterite is considered a collector's stone. Most cassiterite occurs brownish to black, but brighter colors can also occur depending on crystal impurities. Cassiterite mineral deposits can be found in locations all over the world with Bolivia having thought to have the best gem-quality deposits.


Due to recent changes in Etsy policies I am unable to list metaphysical attributes to the crystals. If you’d like more information on them please visit my Facebook page or blog on my website.

Blessings!
